The ILONA-K artspace gallery opens a large-scale educational exhibition project "DREAM CATCHERS", which will unite works of art from two private collections. The second floor of the Mercury Tower will feature works from the collection of the patron, Stella Kesaeva, President of the Stella Art Foundation, and on the 40th - businessman and international investor Vyacheslav Pivovarov.
Ilona Kesaeva, the founder and owner of the Gallery, stressed that this project will become a landmark not only for the recently opened exhibition space, but also for her personally: “I am glad to show this project, which seems to me especially relevant. On the one hand, I show collections of people close to me. This is a small but bright part of the collection of my mother Stella Kesaeva, numbering about 1,500 works of famous Russian and Western artists, as well as the collection of my husband Vyacheslav Pivovarov, who, having received his education at Stanford and having lived most of his life in Europe and the United States, became a real connoisseur of the Western contemporary art. Largely due to their influence, I decided to open my own gallery, and the exhibition at ILONA-K artspace is aimed at promoting the idea of collecting,and also emphasizes the role of the collector in the modern art world. "
The gallery space on the 40th floor will showcase the iconic works of major Western artists of different generations such as Hans Hartung, Ed Ruscha, Andy Warhol, Helen Bird, Monica Bonvicini, Alex Israel, Richard Prince and Damien Hirst, which form the basis of Vyacheslav’s unique collection Pivovarova.
The Mercury Tower exhibition hall, on the second floor, will house works from the Stella Art Foundation collection, many of which will be exhibited in public for the first time. This is one of the largest collections of works by famous Russian and foreign artists created over the past half century, as well as one of the highest quality and finely selected collections of contemporary art in Russia.
The exhibition will feature works by artists who played a key role in the formation and development of Russian art at the turn of the XX-XXI centuries: Yuri Albert, Yuri Avvakumov, Andrey Abramov, Vagrich Bakhchanyan, Vadim Zakharov, Komar and Melamid, Alexander Kosolapov, Elena Elagina and Igor Makarevich, Andrey Monastyrsky, Vladislav Mamyshev-Monroe, Boris Orlov, Ivan Chuikov and others.
